Tehran, Feb 3, IRNA – A Syrian military force announced that US jet fighters targeted Syrian army positions in Abu Kamal, Deir ez-Zor province, eastern Syria.

According to Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), a military source said that the American coalition targeted Syrian artillery units in Sokkariyeh village.

The innocent Syrian civilians have so far been killed in Raqqa, Deir ez-Zor, Al-Hasakah and Aleppo.

The coalition has also destroyed Raqqa almost completely.

This is while, the United Nations Security Council has so far taken no firm action against such attacks.
